Here is a great tip for kids but it is also a great tip for any new golfer. The first thing I want them to do when they come out to practice each day is go get a bucket of balls, but I want them to bring it over to the green and empty it out on the ground. I just want them to pull up a ball to their putter, just go straight back and straight through and hit the balls. Straight back and straight through and just hit the balls. With the emphasis being on straight back and straight through. I want them to feel solid golf shots. This putt is a golf shot and it is probably the most important golf shot you are every going to hit and it is right here on the putting green. What am I doing? I am having them establish contact and I am also having them build their golf swing with a very small golf swing. As long as they are going down and through the ball with every one of their shots they are establishing that contact and they basically are working on a very nice little golf stroke. So one last time, straight back and straight through and establish that contact. When they get done here they can go to where they hit the balls and roll them all back again. They are not wasting their time, they are building their golf swing.
